Door leak in LG LDF6810ST Built-in Dishwasher

The DW has worked well until yesterday (1.2 yrs of service) when water started leaking from the left corner of the DW doorduring the wash and rinse cycles. The seal integrity looks fine. Any suggestions for troubleshooting and repair?
Thank you

    I found another thread on the same topic and the owner of that LG DW said that it was the lower door gasket. I cleaned up the lower gasket of the door, applied silicon sealer to the sides and bottom of the gasket and ran the DW. The door stopped leaking.



    Thank you for your help.

Your drying vent tube is probably leaking inside the door panel.  Remove the outer front panel and on the top left side, there is long white plastic tube connected to the dryer fan assembly.  In that connection is where the problem is.  You will need to disassemble the fan from the door, disconnect the tube from the fan, clean out the water and debris and use silicone when reassembling the tube to the fan.

LG LDF6810ST Dishes Wet


To save energy, the LG LDFx810 dishwasher product family does not turn on the heating element during the drying cycle (third blue light blinking) rather it brings the final rinse water up to a high temp (I think it is 160 degrees (f)) and then uses a condensing drying system (mounted in the door) to pull the wet, hot air from inside the dishwasher. When it works, the dishes come out pretty dry (except for some plastics)

Check this:
-When the DW does its final drain, confirm that the water drained into the garbage disposal is really hot and not just warm. Be careful to not burn yourself and use a meat thermometer if you have one.

- After the water drains for the final time and the dishwasher blinks the third light, put you hand under the left hand side of the DW door. There is a slot down there that should be exhausting warm air.

If either thing is not happening, it is time to get a professional to check things out and make repairs.

Please post back here with what you find or have further questions, OK?

LG dishwasher is dripping water from vent onto floor


Good that it is working. Recommend you keep a lose eye on the vent on the bottom of the door panel. This model will probably begin leaking again if it has not been retrofit with a kit that LG developed.
Please open a new problem when it starts to leak and please provide the Model and serial number when you do. Good Luck!

TOO ALL SAMSUNG LDF AND POSSIBLE OTHER LG DISWASHER USERS:
LG NEGLECTED MY CALLS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. THE DRIPPING PROBLEM FROM THE CORNERS OCCURS:
1- VENT ASSEMBLY FOR HOT AIR BLOWER SEAL LEAKS: EASY TO FIX JUST USE A GOOD QUALITY CAULK AROUND THE SEAM. YOU WILL HAVE TO DISMANTLE THE BLOWER ASSEMBLY WHIXH IS FAIRLY EASY.
2- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: LG HAS A DESIGN FAULT. WHEN THE DISHWASHER FILLS WATER AND STARTS PUMPING TO SPRAYS THE AIR INSIDE THE DW HAS NO WHERE TO GO THEREFORE THE WATER WAS PUSHED UNDER THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR GASKETS (THE ONE ATTACHED TO THE DOOR BOTTOM, NOT THE ONE AROUND THE MAIN CABIN). SO AIR WITH WATER PUFFS OUT OF THE PAN HITS THE DOOR AND LEAKS DOWN. THE SOLUTION IS TO LET THE AIR OUT SOMEHOW. YOU MUST TRY TO PUSH-IN THE DOOR GASKET WHICH IS SEALING LEFT/RIGHT/TOP PART OF THE CABIN AND THE DOOR. IF YOU PUSH TOO MUCH THE WATER MAY LEAK FROM THE SEALS SO BE CAREFUL NOT TOO PUSH TOO MUCH. BASICALLY TRIAL AND ERROR. YOU CAN DO THAT AFTER YOU REMOVE THE DOOR COVER. THE LEAKAGE OCCURS IN THE BEGINNING OF THE CYE SO IT IS FAIRLY EASY TO TRY. IF THAT IS NOT A SUCCESS THEY DROP OF CAULK ON THE ONE OF THE DOOR EDGE TO PUSH THE GASKET SO THAT THE DOOR PUSHES IN THE GASKET TO ALLOW AIR OUT RIGHT AROUND THE CAULK. NORMALLY DISHWASHERS HAVE AN ELECTRICALLY ACTUATED OUTLET TO LET THE AIR OUT. THEY JUST WANTED TO SAVE COST AND HAVE US DEAL WITH THIS RIDICULOUS PROBLEM.
